**5.4 Lecture Guide: Adding and Subtracting Polynomials**

Objective 1: Use the terminology associated with polynomials. Monomials Polynomials Verbally A monomial is a real number, a variable, or a product of real numbers and variables with _______________ number exponents. A polynomial is a monomial or a sum of a finite number of _______________. Algebraic Examples – 5, , x, A, 5x, 7xy and are monomials. and are polynomials. is a polynomial.

3
**A binomial is a polynomial containing _______________ terms.**

Trinomial Verbally A binomial is a polynomial containing _______________ terms. A trinomial is a polynomial containing _______________ terms. Algebraic Examples

4
Degree of a Monomial The degree of a monomial is the sum of the _______________ for all the variables in this term. A nonzero constant is understood to have degree _______________ with exponent , but no degree is assigned to the monomial 0.

5
**1. Determine whether each expression is a monomial. If the**

expression is a monomial, give its coefficient and the degree of each monomial. (a) (b) (c) (d) Monomial? Yes / No Coefficient: ______ Degree: ______

6
**2. Determine whether each expression is a polynomial.**

Classify each polynomial according to the number of terms it contains. (a) (b) (c) (d) Polynomial? Yes / No Classification: ____________

7
**Standard Form of a Polynomial**

A polynomial is in standard form if (1) the variables in each term are written in ____________ order and (2) the terms are arranged in ____________ powers of the first variable. Degree of a Polynomial The degree of a polynomial is the same as the degree of the term with the ____________ degree. To find this highest degree, examine each term individually---do not sum the degrees of the terms.

**3. Write each polynomial in standard form, and give the**

degree of each polynomial. (a) Standard form: Degree:
